5 stars Ok. The best progressive metal album ever made. I respect your opinion if you think this album is a disaster but with that said I love this album! I love every second of it, it's a true blessing for metal. The concept isn't that incredible (although I must say it's original) but the music is astonishing, a true explosion of creativity. This album basically grabbed the progressive metal concept and brought it further beyond anyone could ever imagine. All the tracks flow amazingly and work as a single piece of music.

Standouts would be Fatal Tragedy, Beyond This Life, Home, The Spirit Carries On and Finally Free. An absolute masterpiece, unlike Images And Words, I don't think this is objectively essential, but it's still a masterwork.
